Looking for Pregnant Girl Friendly Rides/Attractions at USF & IOA
What rides/attractions at USF and IOA are okay for a pregnant girl?
My husband, 13 year-old son, and I are visiting Universal Studios Florida and Islands of
Adventure in early June. By then I will be 19 weeks pregnant. I'm wondering what rides/attractions should be off limits to me due to my pregnancy. I'm hoping not to have to sit out of all the fun. I know that the big thrill rides like the Hulk coaster are out for me, but I'm wondering if I can still ride Forbidden Journey, Spiderman, etc. The Universal website wasn't exactly helpful on this topic.

I would ask your Doctor. I would think spider man and FBJ would be a little rough. Maybe you should consider going to Epcot for a day instead.
According to Universal Orlando's accessibility guide
[PDF], you're no-go on:
-Incredible Hulk Coaster
-Doctor Doom's Fearfall
-The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man
-Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls
-Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges
-Jurassic Park River Adventure
-Harry Potter & the Forbidden Journey
-Flight of the Hippogriff
-The Cat in the Hat
-High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride
-Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem
-Hollywood Ride, Ride, Rockit
-Revenge of the Mummy
-Men in Black Alien Attack
-The Simpsons Ride
-Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster
-On Shrek 4D, Twister, and Terminator, you must use stationary seating.
That's, uh, the vast majority of rides and shows in the two parks.
But for Despicable Me, there will be a stationary seating area like its predecessors had.
Firs,t Congrats And 2nd, Most rides YouCant But dont Forget About The Teen I am One My self And I wouldnt Want To Miss Potter If Your, Okay With Him Going Out of You Eyes For a Few There Are Single Rider Lines But Thats It Congrats And Have A good Trip.
Universal is going to cover it butt by recommending you not ride anything that might cause problems. I know that even the Winnie the Pooh ride has caused problems with pregnancies at Disney, so you never know what could do it. However, Universal can't stop you from riding anything. It's up to your judgement, no one else can decide this for you.

Disaster - You can do most of it but leave before getting on the final subway part. Shakes a lot.
ET - It is a slow smooth ride. Maybe the lap restraint is the disqualifier if there is an emergency stop.
High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride - Same as ET
At Universal Studios, there aren't many calm rides but they do have a lot of fun shows.
~Beetlejuice's Graveyard revue
~Fear Factor Live
~Horror Make up show
There are a couple rides at Islands of Adventure and a few shows too.
~High in the Sky Trolley Train ride
~Eighth voyage of Sinbad
I'm no doctor but I think these are pretty safe for you and your baby. I hope you have a good time!
